    Red here is a couple pictures of my Silkie roos.

    Each bird is different for trying to figure out the sex. I knew pretty early on that the 2 in the pictures were roos because their comb & wattles grew pretty fast. In fact out of the 5 Silkie babies I have right now, I suspect 3 are roos. They are just over 6 weeks, but upon inspection today I can see larger comb & wattle development on the 3. So far my experience with comb development has not let me down. Do watch the shape of their head fluff too. Rounded shape is more likely to be female & the males will have little spikey things sticking out the backside of their fluff. How old are your baby silkies?

    Please forgive me. Do you know why women biatch? Cause we don't burp or fart. If we didn't biatch, we'd explode! K. Whew. 2.5 hrs to read posts. Shoulda been 30 min to read relax, comment, enjoy. Oh heck no! What a crappy POS day! I try to s#!t sunshine most days. Today, was like one of grannies bad days.
    I'm going to rant for a sec. so I don't explode.
    8am, lady brings 5 stunning labs, show dogs, to board for the day. She's having a wedding reception. Dogs are barking and screaming ALL DAY unless I'm with them. [​IMG]She didn't tell me how awful they are till she got here! Then, she just kept apologizing saying she usually tranquilizes them! [​IMG]They finally settled down. She's not picking up till 9:30 pm! [​IMG] I need to train a couple dogs each day. Coulda used some help today. Where's retired DH? Eatin breakfast, watching nascar, eatin lunch, watching nascar, snacking watchin nascar...[​IMG] Asked for help this pm. I do this every day without incident. He lets my dogs out, doesn't pay attention, doesn't close the dividers. An HOUR later he asks if I've seen Cabo, my JRT! [​IMG] Dog is farking gone! I was so mad! I found the dog. Want to kill DH. I can't stand passive aggressiveness.
    Whew! I feel better now! So sorry!

    That's true mare. I really do hope one day before I get totally bed ridden that I'm able to afford to build one last thing that looks professional. I can do it if I had the money. I built cabinets the last sixteen years that I worked and took pride in quality. But when you hurt all the time and have no income,kinda hard to do what you want. I'm not trying to get pity believe me. I just want to one day ,even if it takes a year to build one last thing great. Not that anyone's going to come over and say , my Lord that's a great looking coop, lol . But I want to look at it and know that I put all I could in it. The pain is not helping much either lol I'm just trying to get it done and don't want to give it all I got with stuff that's not going to look so great no matter what. Known of my three little coops would look like they do now if I had my choice.
